Project Description

The Karamoja Productive Assets Programme (KPAP) is a joint WFP, FAO and Government of Uganda initiative started in 2010. KPAP is meant to provide productive safety nets to food insecure pastorals and agro-pastorals in drought-affected areas of Karamoja, thus supporting them in progressively graduating from relief aid towards increased self-reliance. KPAP has been serving as the platform for the implementation of the SAFE project, starting from the Napak and Moroto districts, by proposing a package of interventions aimed towards greater human and environmental protection (and regeneration), and livelihoods strengthening and diversification. There are several objectives to the project including the provision of fuel efficient stoves, establishment of woodlots to minimize the need for women and girls to walk long distances in order to collect firewood and thereby reducing their vulnerability to gender-based violence (GBV). The project also seeks to promote alternative livelihoods to reduce reliance on natural resources exploitation for income. The program disseminated 30,931 fuel efficient stoves and led the planting of nearly 14,000 trees. The program ensured the training of 755 FES trainers in addition to the trees planted and fuel-efficient stoves distributed. The location of the project was in Karamoja, Uganda.
